Broken Elbow — Repairing Elbow Fractures (Q&A)

Broken Elbow — Repairing Elbow Fractures (Q&A)


Hi. My name is Dr. Khurram Pervaiz. I am a shoulder, elbow and hand specialist with the Orthopedic Associates of Central Maryland and I work at Howard County General Hospital. Elbow fractures can happen after a fall. This could be a simple ground level fall, as in falling on the floor, or falling down steps or falling off a tree. You would have pain in your elbow, swelling, limitation in motion, you could have bleeding from the elbow, and if you have these symptoms, it would be… you should probably go see someone and
get an x-ray to make sure you do not have an elbow fracture. Going to the emergency room is
probably the best thing to do because in the emergency room they will
probably get an x-ray and find out if you have an elbow fracture and then probably send you to the right specialist. If you are suspicious that you have an elbow fracture, then it would be appropriate for you to make
an appointment with an elbow specialist so they can get x-rays, evaluate you thoroughly and decide whether this is something
that can be fixed with something simple like a cast or whether it’s something that needs surgery. Elbow fractures can be highly complex, technical injuries and frequently specialized training and technical expertise are required to put
these complicated injuries together with surgery. The most important thing in the elbow joint would be the
alignment of the joint itself or the articular surface. If the alignment of the joint has been
affected then it frequently has to be restored through surgery. If that alignment of the joint is okay then elbow injuries can be treated with something simple like a sling or a cast or just immobilization for a short period
time, however, the elbow is a joint that does not
tolerate immobilization very well, so immobilization is usually done for a short period of time to avoid permanent stiffness. Complications from elbow fracture surgery can range
anywhere from nerve injury to bleeding to infection, swelling and stiffness in the arm. Elbow fractures can take anywhere from
six weeks to three months to heal completely. I start therapy immediately because stiffness can be a problem. I don’t generally allow my patients to lift anything heavy with the arm and initially the most important thing
is to elevate the arm to minimize the risk of swelling, infection, and wound breakdown.

PoTS Explained & Chronic Illness Tips [CC]

PoTS Explained & Chronic Illness Tips [CC]


OMG, Ok… We are gonna have such double chin in this video… Oh dear… Hello lovelies! Welcome to my living room floor, it’s very attractive Also hilarious because my brother and I bought exactly the same rug without realising Point to you if you can guess where this rug is from I used to spend a lot of time on the floor- about 60% of the time. The other 40% was lying down in bed. My mother and I used to joke that I could recognise a place by its ceilings and it’s kind of true… I still spend a lot of time lying down but I’m a lot better now. I can sit up in the car rather than lying down on the back seat and I can actually hold my own head up Excellent! Also being able to hold my head up is quite a change… Also I can stand up for more than 2 minutes at a time without fainting. Genuinely, my life is amazing compared to what it once was and I still only leave the house twice a week! Normally when I’m stuck on the floor I don’t film because I can’t exactly set things up around myself I just generally feel pretty pants. Kind of hard for me to follow my train of thoughts I wanted to talk to you about why I’m on the floor so often since I know I’m not the only one and I hope it will help you explain to other people . what’s happening to you. So you can send it to them and be like Look! not just me! I am not the only one who lies down all the time I have a condition called PoTS, which is For some reason I can never remember that It’s related to my connective tissue disorder, which I’ve explained before, card above When a healthy person stands up their blood vessels contract and their heart rate increases slightly to maintain the blood supply to their heart and brain. My blood vessels can’t be arsed with that This is what happens to me Instead, all of my blood rushes down to my feet, turning them purple My heart races, my face goes white and- whomp!- I’m gone. Fainted on the floor. It takes about three seconds. If I stand up to quickly, obviously, not like every time If I stand up slowly we are ok Other symptoms include: I’m saying this so cheerly! “Other symptoms include…” I mean It’s not always that bad, things that can make it worse include being tired or ill If I have my period… The whole week on the floor And I can’t definitely not film in that week because lights Light kills me Even on days when I’m feeling at my tip-top best, I have to be very careful when I stand up If I do it to quickly, then whoosh I hit the floor Fortunately my wife has the world’s best reaction speed and she tends to just grab me very quickly Which is good otherwise there’d be blood and brains Even if is a really bad, lying down does help Specially for some reason, the floor A hard floor vs a soft bed Idon’t know why it just really helps me Sorry I’m blinking so much from these lights As do things like… Making sure I don’t get dehydrated because wow that’s bad Dehydration murders my brain If I could avoid my period I really would Actually it’s never even a week, it’s like 9 days. Who else has a 9 day period? Women’s issues… I can’t even have children so it’s a bit unfari They also exacerbate symptoms But fortunately I can’t eat them So I don’t, there you go I know the Chronic conditions may be all very different and have symptoms that are in no way similar it’s a whole spectrum as well But I think the life advice is generally the same Whatever kind of chronic illness or conditon you have Or even if you are someone who is suffering for something short term If it’s just an illness you are getting right now so Here are my tips, my 5 tips for living with a bad illness If you have a goal make sure it’s achievable. I’m not saying ‘make enough money to be entirely self sufficient and payed a maid’ isn’t possible It’s not, however ‘tango on the moon’ that might be I mean obviously please if that happens film it I need that footage That would make my year My life maybe Someone should do that No something that would make my life would be Fast and Furious I want to go to a Fast & Furious premiere Try not to fit too much into one day- don’t rush, there is always tomorrow. and if not tomorrow then next week looks pretty free. I talked about this in my spoons video. Learn to live within your limits and save some of yourself for later. No pushing. Save yourself, you don’t have to go all out If there’s a date in your diary that can’t be moved then resting beforehand is actually an active doing Equally, resting afterwards is doing because it’s recovering. No need to feel guilty. So technically you’re achieving things left, right and centre. I don’t care what you think you have to do. Drop it ok? You definitely won’t be able to do it when you’re too ill to form thoughts Stop now and you have a chance of recovering in good time. Do I follow my own recommendations? No Do I overwork myself and push for things that aren’t possible? Yes Yes Ido But I’m a work in progress. I’m just trying to get on with my life like everyone else Just got a few challanges But hey we all do! Just different, we’ll all get there in the end If you’re looking for more information then there is an amazing website called that has a ‘living with pots’ section and some really great suggestions and ideas of things! Also, ice cubes! I live in England and Istill get overheated and fail to maintain a normal body temperature I hope you enjoyed this video, hope you can take something from it Share it with a friend If you feel they needed Specially if they feel like they are all alone, and they are the one who just needs to lay down on the floor alone It’s not true, I am lying on the floor too Studying the celling… I should get more interesting lights in my house…

Your Illness is Not Your Fault

Your Illness is Not Your Fault


good morning John I’m still sick this is annoying the thing that I’ve noticed now that I’ve had this happening for like two weeks is that when you are sick people give you advice I’ve actually noticed this for years when it comes to my ulcerative colitis a lot of people seem to have a cure in their back pocket if only I’d go gluten free or stop eating grains or palio or vegan or stop eating short train carbohydrates or fast for three days and then eat an apple seriously it was a whole thing and it took like half the party for him to explain it to me and over the years I’ve tried a lot of those things and none of them worked what worked was taking the medicine that my doctor gave to me and then over the past week people have been saying completely normal things to me like get some rest man or take it easy stop stressing sleep more and I’ve been a little bit shocked by how annoying this is not because it is annoying like its fine It’s a totally fine thing for somebody to say but it’s tapping into this thing that I have with my ulcerative colitis after years of dealing with my chronic illness that I can not cure and having people tell me ways that I should be able to cure it what I’m hearing is not, you know ‘take it easy, we support you’ instead I’m hearing: ‘I have the secret to your wellness and If only ‘you had the courage and fortitude to implement it, you would no longer be sick’ and one step further from that whats tickling by subconscious here is this idea that my illness is my fault I know that my chronic illness is pretty insignificant compared with what a lot of other people are dealing with but I think this is probably an experience that a lot of people have when you tell me, a person who has lived with ulcerative colitis for more than a decade that you have the secret to my wellness I can not help but dislike you like if that’s my first impression, and sometimes it is I’m like ‘I’m out’ and look maybe this is the one weird instance in which you are the one who was right and maybe I’m missing that opportunity to finally make myself better but I’ve heard this line so many times with so many different facts and so many different pieces of anecdotal evidence that all I can hear when people say this to me is ‘your illness is your fault’ because we want it to be somethings fault, right? because if its not the fault of anything, then it has to be just weird random chance and that’s what chronic illness is it just freaking happens to good people and bad people and champion athletes and people who drink to much I’ve dealt with my illness by allowing myself to accept it by admitting to myself and accepting that my life is different now and my body is different now and I have to live inside of this body that sometimes hurts itself science will keep marching forward and someday maybe there will be a medicine that I can take that will control this disease without making me sick in other ways and yes, science shows that my behaviour does influence the expression of my disease and so does my experience of my disease and so I do need support from people that help me make the decisions that my doctor says that I should make and that I have decided for myself that I want to make but I also can’t avoid the truth that this is the body that I’m in and I have to accept that like among the many probabilities that were cast, that mostly came up in my favour I rolled bad on auto-immune diseases my brain tried to tell me over and over again that this is my fault I have searched for every possible way subconsciously and consciously that this is a thing that I did to myself and that’s a crappy feeling and its re-emphasized every time someone tells me that there’s a simple thing that I can do to make myself well I want to say here at the end of this video I’m doing fine, I’m not angry or frustrated at my friends or at you I have a loving and supportive group of people who are fantastic in my life and I do my best to understand that when people are saying these things they’re not trying to make me feel what I’m feeling so I just try and accept that support for what it is rather than how it’s being expressed specifically but if you want to be supportive of someone who’s sick in your life make sure that you recognise that it’s very possible that they are struggling right now with this feeling that they did something to cause or to deserve the illness they have even if objectively they understand that that’s completely untrue when we say there is an easy way out of this and there’s not what we’re making people feel is that ‘this is your fault’ when it’s not. John, I’ll see you on tuesday

Searching for Home – European Refugee Relief

Searching for Home – European Refugee Relief


Every day we are
seeing the bomb. ISIS destroyed all areas. You didn’t know which time the
ISIS come– the government come to kill you. [NON-ENGLISH] They are take you, sells
you, buy you– it’s horrible. [NON-ENGLISH] We are refugees now, but we
didn’t choose to be refugees. No one want to be refugees. We don’t want to just survive. We want to live a real life. There’s a lot of need. There’s a lot of
difficult stories. Yet in these situations,
so many people have had such extreme hope
and resilience as well. And we’re responding at
all the different stops along the route in Greece. Samaritan’s Purse is there,
responding with distribution items, helping camps
with WASH, helping to build shelters and shades
in camps, shifting our focus so that we can respond
accordingly to the needs. We’re really trying
to show Christ’s love in whatever way we can here. It’s not just providing
shelter or non-food items, but right now it’s about
activities as well. So just being able to provide
music, a way for them to smile, to laugh, to maybe forget about
their trauma for a little bit, we’re happy to provide that. [NON-ENGLISH] When we reached the island,
we were very, very happy. You cannot imagine
how we were happy. I was crying as
much I was happy. But unfortunately
two, three days later, a lot of the borders closed. And we’re stuck here. We love life. We love music. We love things that
make you happy. [SINGING] This is like– make us
to remember our memories in Iraq, and in our home. When we were playing, we were
pretending that we were happy. They are playing the music. We all love. We are talking like
we are relatives. They are Yazidi,
and I’m a Muslim. We all love each other. We have to used to
live with each other. We are all one people. I have to all the
time to make myself, my husband, my neighbors,
my friend stronger. We are human. Just I want to– these
countries, to all people, to feel but little–
all these things. It is killing me. Samaritan’s Purse,
the volunteers from these countries,
they make me happy. And they gave us
really, really hope. And I feel that they feel us. Home is a place
that you feel safe, the place that you
are welcome there, the place that you
have your life there. This is not life. This is not home. Actually, I’m still
looking for home. So when this will
happen, I don’t know.

1. Introduction and About this Video – Brain Injury 101

1. Introduction and About this Video – Brain Injury 101


>>DR. SALOMONE: Hello, I’m Dr. Jeffery
Salomone, Co-Director of Trauma at Grady Memorial Hospital.
The injury of a loved one or friend is a difficult thing to face and we recognize this is a very
challenging time for you. The goal of this video is to give you a better
understanding of brain injury and the rehabilitation process ahead. Because a serious brain injury affects not
just the individual but the entire family unit as well, this video also focuses on the
important role of family members during the next several weeks and months. The more you can equip yourself with knowledge,
the better your loved one’s outcome may be. We hope this video will help answer many
of the questions you might have about brain injury. Thank you for watching and thank you
for entrusting the care of your loved one to this hospital.>>JUDY FORTIN: Hello, I’m Judy Fortin in
Atlanta, Georgia. I’ll be hosting this video to help you and your family better understand
brain injury and disease. For much of my career I was a reporter covering healthcare at CNN.
It’s important to me to help the public deal with medical and health crisis issues
by bringing them timely, accurate information. That’s the purpose of this video – to
give you and your family helpful information right now so you can prepare yourselves for
the challenges ahead. People with brain injury and their families need to know about and
have access to the right resources and support to make their recovery as good as it can possibly
be. Major injuries like the one you are dealing
with have complex consequences that may involve part or all of the central nervous system.
Since the brain and the spinal cord can both be affected in major injuries, it may be important
that you learn about brain and spinal cord injury. Watch our companion video detailing
spinal cord injury for more information. Throughout both these videos, you’ll hear
from some of the nation’s top neuroscientists, physicians and patient advocates who will
help me share timely information with you. The sponsors of this video hope to give you
a resource that you can return to as often as you like. We’ve organized the information
so you can select the chapters that address the specific needs you may have as the patient
yourself or as a concerned friend or family member. [DVD version continues: The chapters
and sub-chapters within them work just like the items on a movie DVD] – [both versions
continue: You can select the chapters you want to watch and then use the easy onscreen
navigation to skip forward or go back to another section at any time. The chapters on this
program are: Chapter I – Introduction & About this Video
Chapter II – Brain Injury Basics & Anatomy of the Brain
Chapter III – Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury: Its Causes, Effects, Classifications
Chapter IV – Understanding Non-Traumatic Brain Injury: Its Causes, Effects, Classifications
Chapter V – Practical Advice for Coping With Brain Injury>>JUDY FORTIN: At this time, I want to introduce
you to a special guest who understands what you’re going through because she’s had
first-hand experience. Lee Woodruff is a best-selling author and leading advocate for people with
brain injuries. She joins us now.>>LEE WOODRUFF: In January of 2006, my husband
Bob was seriously injured in a bomb blast in Iraq while covering the war for ABC News.
In an instant, the shock of that news turned our family upside down. Bob suffered a traumatic
brain injury, and doctors removed 16 centimeters of his skull to save his life. He also had
major damage to his face and jaw. Right now, you probably feel very uncertain
about what the future holds. In the minutes and hours after getting the news about Bob,
I was in the very same place. Would he live? Would he have permanent brain damage? From
the start I clung to the fact that my husband was alive, and to hope – hope that he would
be okay. My family and friends and Bob’s colleagues soon became my rock, as I quickly
realized that I was not alone in my grief, or my fear. Later, I learned that there are
more than five million people living with the after-effects of brain injury in our country. You are not alone either. Lean on people who’ve
gone through this – call in your friends, relatives, your church, community and your
support groups. And then you have to pull yourself together to help your loved one get
better and either become or find an anchor for your family. There’s plenty of information about brain
injury on the Internet, some of it good and some of it not so good. I encourage you to
use credible resources, like this video and web sites from recognized brain injury organizations.
Don’t try to learn everything at once. I didn’t. Rely on the medical professionals
caring for your loved one to help you know what to focus on next. Do your best to take
things a step at a time, one day at a time, and recognize that even the smallest progress
is positive. You have good days and bad days on the long road ahead, and that’s okay. Today, my husband is a working journalist
and an active father. We were so lucky to have a talented team of U.S. military brain
surgeons and trauma care doctors and nurses take care of Bob after his injury and throughout
his rehabilitation. If your loved one has sustained a serious brain injury, whether
it’s traumatic or caused by an illness or chronic condition, it’s important that they
get specialized treatment as soon as possible. Statistically, it makes a huge difference
in their long-term recovery. First, you want to get the most you can out of your trauma
care stay.>>JUDY FORTIN: It’s important to realize
that being at the trauma care center is an interim step in your loved one’s long-term
recovery. There can be a wide range of possible outcomes down the road. As Lee said, try to
focus first on what’s happening right now. Your loved one was probably stabilized by
paramedics at the site where the accident occurred. If the injury was from a trauma,
the head and neck may be immobilized to prevent further damage to the nervous system, spine
and the brain.>>DAVID W. WRIGHT, MD: In the United States,
we are fortunate to have dependable standards for emergency and trauma care, which establish
milestones for that care. At the trauma center, the first step is to medically stabilize the
patient’s condition. Next, they may be given numerous tests and x-rays, and assessed by
various medical specialists. And finally, they may be moved to the operating room or
a hospital room, depending on their condition. This is bound to be a very hectic time, so
try to stay positive and be confident that you are in good hands at the trauma care facility.>>LEON HALEY, MD: It’s natural to wonder
what you might do right now to help your loved one and the care team.
Initially you may be greeted by a nurse or social worker. Let them help you think of
questions you might ask the doctors you’ll see later. Soon the treatment team will update
you on your loved one’s condition. Ask his or her trauma caregivers to explain the basic
tasks they are performing. And, keep these important tips in mind during the trauma care
or hospital stay: If possible, have one point person gather
all of your family’s questions. Limit visits and the number of visitors at
any given time. Allow yourself or your loved one time to rest
between visits. Have everyone who visits maintain a soft and
calm tone of voice. Assume that your loved one can hear you and
be careful of everything that is said within earshot. Your role right now is to support
their recovery in an encouraging and positive way.
If your loved one is able, encourage him or her to move around as much as their condition
and their medical team will allow. Movement might include coughing to stimulate breathing
muscles, deep breathing, sitting up, or moving around the room.>>JUDY FORTIN: Chapter two is next. We’ll
share some basics about the anatomy of the brain and how it works.

Reviewing Brave Browser’s Creator & Reward Incentives | EP#144

Reviewing Brave Browser’s Creator & Reward Incentives | EP#144


Hey everyone Scott Cunningham aka @scottcbusiness today we’re going to be talking again about the brave browser
but we’re also gonna take a look at the rewards program and the creator program
that they have and I’d like to share with you some of my results that I’ve
gotten from using these and just generally do a quick overview of brave
itself it’s a really really cool platform and I highly highly recommend
using this as your internet browser because I mean I’ve earned
cryptocurrency from this a decent amount more than you could earn obviously
anywhere else this is the only platform that I am even aware of that offers this
it is allowing you to monetize your attention that you would otherwise give
to ads and it has a built in ad blocker and a bunch of different things that
just make it so much better than other platforms even without the crypto aspect
so let’s take a look let me just jump to the main platform
all right so features of brave it is uh right off the bat it’s already way fast
or two times faster on desktop and up to eight times faster on mobile the reason
it’s so much faster is because it scrapes away a lot of the different
things that you would otherwise see scripts tons of different things that
are taking a bandwidth and it makes it just the bare-bones what you actually
need to see it also removes all the ads and everything else makes your life a
lot easier and it removes tracking – which we’ll look at right here
so that is right here this is your brave shield you can block trackers it
automatically will upgrade your security block scripts lots of different things
and you can change your defaults and whatever you want to use really really
useful they’re ensuring that your personal data isn’t going out it’s very
customizable way more security it’s very simple very easy to use setting up a lot
of good default security and ad blocking measures versus doing it after the
fact and something that I found super super useful is when I when I started
using brave I had to bring over all these bookmarks and all my data from
Chrome and and and in my other platforms and it took only a few seconds to upload
and import everything from my other platforms which made my life way easier
you earn cryptocurrency for the ads you do allow so you could use this and have
a way better browsing experience with no crypto involved whatsoever then should
you allow ads up to five an hour you can earn cryptocurrency in the form of be 80
tokens basic attention tokens because they’re monetizing your attention and
giving you a piece of the ad revenue and by doing this you can earn
cryptocurrency every single month and then what you can do with that is you
could donate it to other Creators you could keep it for yourself you could
just sell it right away whatever you want to do it’s yours now and again as
far as I’m concerned there are no other platforms that offer this today now we
already talked a little bit about some of these ad blocking cookie control all
that good stuff also when you exit brave and you come back in all of your tabs
will reload really really useful feature just tons of useful things that you
already we’ll see with chrome or better features on top of that and really
really nice you can download all the same extensions that you would from the
Google store and it has full interoperability with anything that you
would get on Chrome but with all of the added benefit of the security not being
tracked earning cryptocurrency all that good stuff so let’s take a look at the
brave rewards so something that’s also cool is they give you free b8e grants to
use those to donate to creators because they want to encourage the flow of b80
from users to creators as a way to help fund creators because
here’s the thing a lot of craters like on YouTube for example earn off of ad
revenue and when everyone is using ad blockers they’re now losing all of that
money when you’re enabling brave and you’re earning crypto for viewing ads
and you’re still blocking the creators ads you can then donate your freely
earned dat to them as a way to you know support them and compensate them for
their hard work and so it’s going to take the money away from these massive
big tech oligarchies like YouTube and Facebook and instead it’s going to give
the money to you and the Creator so it’s going to just create a much better community-based you know model for for
how ads are run and how how attention is monetized and and how all of that works
while you’re browsing on the internet it makes your life way easier it’s super
simple you can easily extract it put it in your wallet as you see here I’ve got
169 ba t really really quick easy very useful this is the you would just click
on this to go to your brave rewards or you could see a little right here just
on your browser brave semi colon slash slash rewards and as you can see I’ve
got eighteen point three in my my wallet here earnings from ads that I did that I
viewed last month and then you can see what I’ve been earning for this month
that will pay out on August 5th that was for a hundred and thirty-four ads but
they’re usually just notifications that will pop up and they’re very very
unintrusive and I almost don’t even notice most of them so you know it’s not
like massive ads that are appearing in the middle of your videos and you know
really intruding on your experience and making it much more annoying
and tedious and we don’t have that with brave so that’s really nice to see
there’s also auto contribute so say you just want to generally donate to anyone
that you’re watching without having to go through and actually tip them
individually every time you can just set up Auto contributions which makes life
very easy and yeah so that that’s kind of how you can do this and you can
easily extract it go and satellite or do whatever you want to do and then yeah
you could see grants here as well earned 14.5 from Grants because they just give
you grants and then you can donate that to different creators you can’t take out
the grants and just use them yourself you have to actually donate them to
creators to really just encourage people interacting with creators and and
helping them earn and supporting them via brave so in terms of creators let’s
take a look at the the Creator section here and then I’ll share with you what
I’ve got going on so as a creator you can sign up you can set up you know
YouTube twitch Twitter your own websites and things there’s a lot of options and
then when people are on you know whichever website they’ll see the option
here it’ll pop up there’s like a little try there’s a little check mark blue
checkmark for a verified creator so for example here if you wanted to donate
some vit to brave you could very easily do that by sending them a small tip and
it’s very easy to do and it’ll just sort of it’ll it allow you to reward these
different creators for for the time you spend on their on their content where
you blocked their ads so it’s kind of just allowing you to still support them
without taking anything away from them so again if you were here and you were
on my Twitter you could see that you could donate to me I haven’t really set
this up very well clearly I need to do that but yeah you can change your banner
and everything I obviously have to still do that
but yeah it’s really really intuitive really easy to use and as you can see
Wow month which was my first month of using
b8e well like the b80 creator program brave
crater program I earned almost 77 b80 and you know that’s not a crazy amount
of b80 but considering I wouldn’t have it
otherwise that is very significant and I’ve got five pending right now so you
know some of it is from you know people using my referral to actually download
brave because they didn’t have it and then they saw a video that I did and
then they downloaded it and then some of it is from tips and grants and different
things as well I see highly recommend checking this out
if you’re a creator and I highly recommend if you’re just like a viewer
to to consider using brave to better support the people that you’re trying to
support especially if you’re using an ad blocker so that’s basically it I just
wanted to give you guys a quick overview of brave and what you can actually do is
you know a creator as just a general user and also one last thing is for for
advertisers so for them it’s also really great because if you want to advertise
on brave people are you know getting some crypto for viewing advertisements
so they’re much more incentivized to actually you know take a look at what
while you’re advertising versus just you know trying to get rid of it as quick as
possible and because they’re actually opting in to allow for these ads they’re
also giving it kind of the okay doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to be better
but if you’re otherwise going to have your ads blocked by an ad blocker then
this is a great solution for advertisers as well so really with brave everyone
wins and again I don’t know of any other
browsers that do this the only other browser that I really
support is gabs browser dissenter because it has generally a lot of the
same things that this has but it doesn’t have any cryptocurrency monetization so
it lacks that that that paying you for your attention
and helping you monetize what you’re doing in your day to day experiences
browsing the Internet gab does have dissenters applicant like the dissenter
browser does have the ability to open up a comment section anywhere on the
Internet which is really significant so I guess it’s more like if you’re really
into free speech you could do that or you could just go and use their website
to do it on brave I still mainly use brave because you know the incentive of
earning cryptocurrency for allowing us to pop up is very very appealing and and
that’s why I recommend you guys check it out
I’m sure BAT is just going to keep going up and up so I’m happy to hold on
to it now and see where things go let me know what you guys think about brave the
rewards program and the Creator program and whether or not you actually use the
browser or play into and if you don’t have it and you plan to download it
